Hemisection denotes removal or separation of root with its accompanying crown portion of mandibular molars. This procedure represents a form of conservative approach, aiming to retain as much of the original tooth structure as possible. The results are predictable and success rates are high. In this paper a case is presented in which hemisection was done because the tooth was grossly carious along with furcation involvement. Distal half of tooth was extracted and the remaining tooth was restored as premolar which helped to reduce the masticatory load.
